This feature was and still is only available in SvS. It has NEVER been available in plunder sailing EVER.

Ugh! Griefer on board, he initiates a Vote to Boot the Capt. because he wants to Port for Gold, a few Low Levels agree... Suddenly the Ship is minus it's Capt. against a Bounty Hunter and is left dead in the water to Sink!

Poor Capt. is more than capable of handling the Pesky Hunters, but because he opened to Public he now has to dredge his ship outta Davy Jones Locker... Sure gonna inspire more captains to NOT Open to Public.

ROFL, yes I do see great folly to allow the inmates run the asylum by voting at all. No Captain worth their salt is going to permit any voting. Does a Captain ask his/ her friends, guildmates, and complete strangers who to permit before boarding his/ her own ship? Nay. Captain already decided and checks off the boarding permission as he/ she pleases. Captain decides what to plunder for and those who agree are welcomed to board. Captain runs his/ her ship throughout the voyage commanding what the crew must do to insure their success in claiming all their plunder.

Unfortunately, through no fault of the Captain, some scallywag boards the ship and creates 'issues' with no intention of stopping their bit of drama. In such instances, Captain should be empowered to make the upstart walk the plank... or send them to the Brig.

It's quite possible for the developers to create a Brig on board the ship. Once the individual is thrown in, that individual will no longer be seen above deck carrying on. He/ she is no longer counted as a Shipmate or as a member of the crew. Whatever they earned while above deck is all they get minus any loot or materials. Meaning, they just get gold only. They have the option to therefore leave or stay on board. No one can teleport to them either because that Go To button is automatically disabled... as well as their chat. They will be unable to chat to anyone at all. The only power they have is to either stay until the Captain ports, or leave voluntarily. Doesn't matter which action they choose at that point, they are banned from playing on that server for the next 24 hours.

I like the Brig idea very much.

Aargh!

I'm very much liking the Brig idea... Especially where they are left just the 2 options once the Captain confines them there... Either Leave with what you've earned already GOLD ONLY or Stay there "Silent as the Grave" to contemplate their transgressions, with either resulting in a 24Hr. ban from that Ocean.

Just imagine how quick Abassa would quieten down, lots of pirates there are sure to find themselves in the Brig faster than Joshamee Gibbs after a Hip Flask.
